"The Beautiful People Are Ugly Too" as written by Topper Headon, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Joe Strummer....
I see, the law caught your hands on the stuff
And if that wasn't enough
Means I totally fell for your bluff
Oh, how you kicked off that stuff

Oh, the beautiful people are ugly too
There's going to be a lot of washing when the dance is through

Now your face without pretence
Is lit up on the fence

You, you, you, you
You can buy another singer like you got a lot of money
You, you, you, you
You can buy another singer like you got a lot of money

All those who feign indifference
Whether to be or become past tense
The forgotten part of old acquaintance
Who stiffed out on the Itchykoo Park bench

And the beautiful people are ugly too
There's going to be a lot of washing when the dance is through

Admit it!
You thought you were the hero
Of "The Fulham Connection 2"
Yeah, the flashing strip
You flashed your jewels
But now: the credits
It must roll through

You, you, you, you
You can buy another singer like you got a lot of money
You, you, you, you
You can buy another singer like you got a lot of money

Oh, the beautiful people are ugly too
There's going to be a lot of washing when the dance is through
And the beautiful people are ugly too
There's going to be a lot of washing when the dance is through

A fatal mistake, they lived a year in a week
And ready to be great if you got a receipt

You, you, you, you
You can buy another singer like you got a lot of money
You, you, you, you
You can buy another singer like you got a lot of money

You can't get a lot of swing along a letter to jail

The beautiful people are ugly too
There's going to be a lot of washing when the dance is through
Now the beautiful people are ugly too
